|Everybody knows what a poodle looks like; it is a curly hair, skinny dog that comes in several sizes. It starts as a full size dog and goes all the way to a toy poodle that you can hold in your arm. You can find them in many range of colors but the most popular ones are black and white, grey ones are also lovely. When dealing with poodles you must decide if you will trim their hair or leave it as it is. This is a tough decision because if you do cut it, it will need a trim a minimum once a month, if you don’t you will need to keep it downsized at least every forty five days.|
Poodles come in three different recognized sizes by the worlds major kennel clubs, the standard poodle is over 15" tall, the miniature is less than 15" but not smaller than 11" while the toy is less than 11'. (Measurements are made from the highest points on the shoulers.) You may hear references to other sizes like royal standard, teacup, and tiny teacup but these are only marketing descriptions used by breeders and not recognized by any kennel clubs.
Poodle’s temperaments vary according to their size and origin. Larger dogs are intermittently active and relaxed, they like to play around for a while, but they also like to lie down and relax. They are very elegant dogs both standing and sitting down. Poodles are very athletic and fast learners. They are considered to be among the easiest to learn hard complicated tricks and instructions. They are excellent watchdogs that sometimes over do their duties and go crazy barking at a bird in the yard. They love to play outside and run and jump, but they also enjoy cuddling by their master before the fire.
You should never be concerned about taking your dog to the vet because of the cost when good pet insurance is so cheap.
